Problem Solving Board- UPSE

How do you get your students to think about problem solving?
 My district has implemented a new problem solving board and teachers who use it, are seeing added benefits to problem solving. One grade level has decided to take it up a notch and use the UPSE model.
(UPSE sounds like the first word in Whoopsie Daisy)
Understand
Plan
Solve
Evaluate

Here is how it looks as a work mat in my classroom. Students use either of these Problem Solving Boards to solve their problems.
